Drops a decent amount, then hard to re establish connection
20 October 2015
Summary: Maybe I just got a faulty device. Mine will drop a couple times a day. and it will just not show any connections available. I have to do a hard restart on my computer, unplug it and re plug it in to get it to function again.
This thing is just plain garbage. All netgear WiFi adapters are

Summary: This thing is just plain garbage. All netgear WiFi adapters are. They are not capable of handling multiple connections. So if you are trying to download large files using something like torrents (or updating Windows now) the adapter will crash.
Summary: I bought this adapter in July 2015 at Best Buy. Within a month it started disconnecting after I let the pc sit idle for an hour or two. I have to go to the router in another room, unplug it 10 seconds, and plug the router in again, then wait for adapter to reconnect.
Summary: Product is unreliable. Under Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 the USB Wi-Fi adapter will randomly stop working from a fixed location. Sometimes repair network adapter will fix it or unplugging the device and plugging it back in but the majority of the time now it requires a full reboot.
Summary: Works well on a pc but when I ordered the second one it limits the use to one per household on computers on the same wifi.. I will keep the second one for backup if the first one stops working.
Summary: Very finicky with windows 8. They do not offer support past 90 days and it keeps losing connection and I have to unplug it every 10 minutes to get it to detect the signal again. I downloaded the most recent drivers and still no good.
it gets annoying when it'll work for 1-2 days and requires resetting
X. ha, Amazon

I smashed this POS before I threw it in the garbage

Summary: I'm not sure this is an adapter so much as it's an elaborate experiment designed by Netgear to see what will happen to a person's sanity if they purchase an adapter that randomly connects and disconnects every five minutes.
